Fall Student Bible Study - The True Love Project - Sunday Nights 6-7:30pm
This Fall, students will have the opportunity to study what Scripture teaches on purity and relationships. We will be going though Clayton and Sharie King's - The True Love Project.
"The True Love Project is a video-driven Bible study for all students that provides an in-depth look at what the Bible has to say in regards to sex, purity, and romance. By starting with God’s story and ending with sex, God’s glory and one’s mission, students will explore a number of topics that demonstrate the centrality of the gospel when it comes to defining one’s purity. What would today’s world look like if teens embraced love as the gospel defines it? Answering that question is the life mission of Clayton King—a pastor and professor set out to prove that there is a better way, a way that is more pure, more satisfying, and more fulfilling than any “love” that society is selling. The True Love Project is a call to embrace the true love that God has intended for us all. "
Students will be split by gender for this study as we all spend time studying and talking about how the Gospel should define our purity and relationships. Parents, if you would like more information on this study you can check out more of their resources online. Also, there is a book that goes along with this study if you would like to purchase it to read more about what we will be studying. Here is the amazon link

Discipleship Groups are age and gender specific small groups that are focused on reading God's word, praying for each other, and sharing life together.
